In a recent turn of events, it appears now as if Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly is close to a five year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and not the Cleveland Browns as many have reported.
According to Brian Startare of Sportsradio 94 WIP in Philadelphia, that the Eagles have swooped in and taken Kelly from the clutches of the Cleveland Browns. Startare is so confident in his sources that if he is wrong he will fire his source.
Startare said in a tweet, "If wrong my source is fired."
The Eagles and Kelly met for over nine hours and appeared to have changed his mind on going to Cleveland. Kelly also interviewed with the Buffalo Bills before the team eventually hired Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone.
The Eagles seem to be a better fit for Kelly and his offensive scheme. It would allow Vick, McCoy, and Jackson to make big plays for the Eagles and, to me, that probably swayed him to go to Philly.
That and money. Truckloads and truckloads of money.
